This Hit and Miss Spoof of "The Exorcist" has its moments but not enough., 20 November 2007
Author: Lucien Lessard from Canada

Nancy Aglet (Linda Blair) is a lovely woman, who lives the decent middle-class life in the suburbs with his husband Braydon (Thom Sharp) and their two children (Benj Thall and Dove Dellos). But a long time ago, Nancy was possessed by the devil and she was exorcised by a kind priest Father Jebedaiah Mayii (Leslie Nielsen). Now after all these years, when Nancy lived the good life... then suddenly she's repossessed again after 17 years ago, when she's watching TV with her family. Now the possessed Nancy wants Father Mayii to battle with him again and to see, if Father Mayii still got what it takes to remove the demon out of her. Since Father Mayii is too old to fight this demon again, he's getting help from a young inexperience priest Father Luke Brophy (Anthony Starke). But when Father Brophy tells the Church there's a possessed woman, the Church thinks it would be best if it's televised with the association of a sleazy televangelist (Ned Beatty) and his wife (Lana Schwab) hoping to get millions from the ratings and of course... donations to the Chruch and stealing money from the donations by the televangelist by making himself richer. But the situation goes way out of control on live TV and the possessed demon is hoping to get people possessed by other demons for those who watched the TV special. Now Father Mayii and Father Brophy are forced to fight with this demon, before it's gets away by controlling the world.

Written and Directed by Bob Logan (Meatballs 4, Up Your Alley) made an not so successful spoof to the classic horror movies of all time "The Exorcist" with Blair making fun of her own Oscar-Nominated role. The problem with the film, while it is watchable. While the directing and the script by the director isn't always successful. There's some terrible acting at times and some unsuccessful gags are supposed to hit the mark. Which Logan is certainly not the right writer or director to make this kind of spoof. But Logan does tries hard for it and he goes some points for it. But it's Blair, Nielsen and Starke makes its somewhat enjoyable if forgettable movie fun to watch and they give their 110 %. Blair still certainly looks great with that demonic possession look and it looks almost as good but different than the original Make-Up look that it was design by Oscar-Winner:Dick Smith. "Repossessed" is certainly a curiosity movie, nothing more with good comedic performances by the leads, some good visual gags and amusing cameos. If you want to see Blair having a blast with this role, it is worth a look at least once. (** ½/*****).
